Of the four species, they all have white fur on their chest, bellies, and neck, and black tipped ears. They are a feline and reside in North America and Europe and Asia.
The lynx is known by the tuft of black hair on the tips of its ears and its short, or “bobbed,” tail. All lynx have manes of longer hair around the face and neck, and their back legs are longer than their front legs, making them look slightly tipped forward. Canadian lynx have uniquely huge paws with long, thick fur to keep its toes warm in the winter. The Canadian lynx can spread its toes out wide like snowshoes to help it walk in soft snow.
One factor that makes the lynx unique is that it’s made a come back!
Since the beginning of the 20th century, the Eurasian lynx was considered extinct in the wild in Slovenia and Croatia. A resettlement project, beginning in 1973, has successfully reintroduced lynx to the Slovenian Alps and the Croatian, including Plitvice Lakes National Park and Risnjak National Park. In both countries, the lynx is listed as an endangered species and protected by law.
In Romania, the lynx population exceeds 2,000, the largest population in Europe outside of Russia, although most experts consider the official population numbers to be overestimated.
